On‐line computer control of book circulation is being developed at the Queen's University of Belfast. The desire for ease of integration with the existing system and flexibility for future automation of the ordering and cataloguing routines has led to the adoption of a manual typing form of input and the retention of the existing book numbers. This paper discusses the computer processing necessary before book numbers can be sorted to obtain alphabetically and numerically, ordered, lists as computer output suitable for librarian or reader use.
